Salar De Uyuni And Tunupa Volcano
The Salar de Uyuni in SW Bolivia is the world's largest salt flat, covering over 10,000 square km. Its huge size, the thin dry air at high altitude (approx 3650m / 12,000ft) and surface textures and patterns can make for some surreal sunsets, sunrises and atmospheric effects, well worth braving the cold for! These hexagons form as the surface of the Salar dries out and the salt crystallises after the rainy season, adding to the other worldy feel of the place. Tunupa volcano (5368m / 17,715ft) dominates views across to the northern shore of the Salar.
